Burgers
Plan Check Kitchen + Bar has multiple neighborhood restaurants located in Los Angeles, serving modern American comfort food in a small plate format along with unique cocktails, premium whiskeys and craft beers. The Plan Check name and brand stem from the first location, adjacent to the Building and Safety Department, where hundreds of Architects, Developers, Designers and Engineers flock daily to get plans reviewed for permitting. It embodies the architectural/creative lifestyle and the culture that surrounds it, effortlessly blending vintage architectural office elements with industrial pieces, rich materials and a warm atmosphere. Plan Check Kitchen + Bar is also the home of Ketchup Leather™. This innovative square of deliciousness makes the Plan Check signature burger unique--not only does it add great flavor, it also prevents the burger buns from getting soggy! One might never think about ketchup the same way again.

I think there was only one waitress working in the entire restaurant. It took her 45 minutes to take our order and give us water. The food was okay. The burger was not worth $18 - it tasted like something from Carl's Jr. What happened to the Nashville hotfish sandwich?

Don't advertise super bowl specials if you're not equipped to show the super bowl! The volume didn't work, the two TVs were on a delay... we went there specifically bc of marketing emails to come watch the game and were very disappointed they weren't set up to do so. Also, the service was slow and there were mistakes all night. I do have to admit the food is good if you want upscale, bar food. Sweet potato waffle fries are awesome as is the PCP burger.

Plan check was great. We caught the tail end of their happy hour. The pie and thigh was the best!

ran out of a few different draft beers. Burgers were alright - nothing too noteable besides the ketchup leather. Not as many vegetarian sides (sweet potato fries cooked in beef tallow)

Not impressed with the hamburgers. Small thin patties. And over cooked Toppings were tasty though.

This is my daughter’s favorite place to grab a burger. Unfortunately, today there was only one waitperson and he was diligent in trying to meet the needs of all the customers, but alas one person cannot effectively meet the needs of 30 patrons. My order was off, but the quality of the burger was on par with its usual service.

Plan Check itself is amazing! This location could probably use another server or two on the floor though. Having 2 servers on a Sunday afternoon in Santa Monica doesn’t seem like the best idea.

The waitress acted bothered the entire time we were there and did not listen to what I ordered. She ran out the minute we put cash down to pay our bill snatched it up and didn’t say thank you or anything.

I love burgers, I served burgers at my wedding. My friends recommended very strongly that I try this restaurant - either they have terrible taste in burgers or the quality has gone down. I would not recommend this spot. Service was borderline rude, and food was just not worth the hype. Go to Umami, it's a 10 minute walk and way better!

Great burgers are their specialty. Lots of creative additions to these tasty burgers. Good wine and local beer choices. The only complaint is the sides sometimes include cole slaw which was just tasteless dry cabbage on the plate. Otherwise everything was very good.

We had a going away brunch at Plan Check. With the exception of one person's food, the service, timing, and food was excellent. Our server has our table ready right away and made sure to keep our bottomless mimosas coming. One meal was served incorrectly (twice), but they made sure that wasn't included on the bill. Excellent service. Great location. Excellent time. Thank you!

Stellar service from Josias! He recommended excellent wine and beer - was extremely knowledgable about the food and treated us to an amazing churro donut dessert. My only suggestion would be to offer more dessert options - hint: chocolate.
